Women always choose the bad boy

“Bachelor No. 1 is a successful photographer who got his start when his father found him in the dark room at the age of 13, fully developed,” host Jim Lange said. “Between takes you might find him skydiving or motor-cycling. Please welcome Rodney Alcala.”

“Who will it be?” the host asked her at the end of the show. “I’ll take One [bachelor No. 1],” Bradshaw said, and out strolled Alcala.

Within months of his “Dating Game” appearance, Alcala would become a killer, prosecutors said, abducting and murdering a 12-year-old girl in 1979. Before the decade was over, Alcala would claim four more victims, according to testimony at his trial.

Bachelor #2 is still bitter about not being chosen and is going to whine about it on CNN tonight.

    I read about this last week and watched the Dating Game segment where Alcala. I might know someone who was murdered by this guy back in the late 70s. This guy is really a piece of work. His M.O. is all over the place – he’s suspected of murdereding maybe 30-40 women in So Cal and NYC.

    This could turn out to be bigger than Bundy.

    Oh, and Bundy would have easily won The Dating Game!

    Sharing time. I was on the Dating Game in 68 There is no way I remember who was sitting next to me, I barely remember the date (Fresno Festival) with a girl who did not want to be there any more than I did. Bachelor #2 is just shooting for fame.
    Alcala is a creepy dude to be sure, he will be going away forever.

    No more sharing time.


  3. Someone should have given him the stinkpalm.

    The truly creepy part occurs when you realize that bachelor #3 was a young Dick Cheney.

    I wonder why the woman didn’t go out with Alcala, although I can’t argue with her decision.
